CHICAGO - Rashad Evans is ready to shed a tag he's worn for the past two years - that of a No. 1 contender.
Following Saturday's UFC on FOX 2 main-event win over fellow light-heavyweight contender Phil Davis, the groundwork's been laid for an April 145 title fight with champ and bitter rival Jon Jones.
"I'm ready to fight in April," Evans said. "I'm excited to finally get the opportunity to fight Jon and give fans the fight they want to see."
